Lucha Underground commentator and former WCW star Vampiro is currently wheelchair-bound after his bout against former Impact Wrestling star Crazzy Steve during WrestleCade this past week in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The 51-year-old competitor took to Instagram to share a photo of himself at the airport in a wheelchair. According to the competitor, he suffers from a condition due to the back and neck injuries he has sustained over the years. He can lose control of his legs, arms, and hands.
Prior to his match against Steve, Vampiro revealed that he couldn’t even really walk. The casket match was, for all intents and purposes, less of a concern then even being able to get up on his own two feet.
Regardless of everything, Vampiro went out there and participated in the match. He gave it everything he could, given the situation he was in. He explained that he wouldn’t let the pain stop him from letting others down. He notes that he is using the money from his bout at Wrestle Cade to help his daughter this Christmas.

This is, of course, hard to hear. We at Ringside News would like to wish Vampiro the very best, and hope that he can learn more about his condition and improve in the future.
